Your generosity helps to form the hearts and minds of young Catholics. Since the matriculation of our first students in 2019, we have welcomed many generous benefactors and friends who share in our commitment to form the human person in awe and wonder before the True, the Good and the Beautiful.
It is with great joy that we can offer Financial Aid to all students who require assistance. We ask for continued donations as we welcome new students into our growing community. Whether you are already a donor of the Institute or have recently come to learn about us, we ask you to prayerfully consider making a giftof support today.
Thank you for your generosity!
Important Information About Your Donation
Our 501(c)(3) Status
The Saint Jerome Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization as of June 14, 2018. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
2020 CARES Act
Take Advantage of the 2020 CARES Act tax deduction to Support SJI! Previously, taxpayers could itemize deductions or take the standard deduction, but could not do both. Now, the CARES Act allows the approximately 86% of taxpayers who choose to take the standard deduction, to also take an above-the-line deduction for charitable gifts of up to $300 for individuals and $600 for married couples.
What this means for you, is you can now deduct charitable gifts of $300 or $600 from your gross income to determine your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), and then further reduce your AGI by deducting an additional $12,400 or $24,800 (the 2020 standard deduction for individuals and married couples), to decrease your 2020 tax liability.
Deduct 100% of your AGI
Previously, taxpayers who itemize deductions could only deduct 60% of their AGI. Now, the CARES Act allows taxpayers to deduct 100% of their AGI, and to carry over excess contributions for up to 5 additional years (subject to the usual 60% limitation).
